Brennan has thrown for 4,174 yards and 38 touchdowns in leading the Warriors (12-0) to their first outright conference title, an undefeated season and a berth in the Sugar Bowl against No. 4 Georgia on Jan. 1. The Heisman Trophy candidate also has eight rushing TDs.
Fresno State linebacker Marcus Riley earned WAC defensive player of the year honors and Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick was named the freshman of the year.
This season, Brennan became the NCAA career leader in touchdown passes and currently has 131 in his three seasons. The senior from Irvine, Calif., was among 11 players from Hawaii named to the all-WAC first team.
Boise State, which finished second in the conference, placed five players on the first team, while Fresno State had four.
